A visit to the Aland Maritime Museum is exciting for children and adults alike. The exhibitions are filled with dramatic stories and fantastic objects, such a genuine 18th century pirate’s flag. There are also lots of interactivities, such as a climbing mast, a bridge simulator and a karaoke. Seadog, landlubber or in between - Aland Maritime Museum has something for everybody.

If you have the time, I would recommend this. The pirate flag alone is worth the visit! It gives you a great idea of what the history of this area is all about.

A modern museum for the whole of the family. Lots of activities aswell as historical perspective. The museum is located next to the old 4 masted bark Pommern, still in original condition.

Famous for the P class ships that were among the last commercial sailing vessels in the world the mariehamm museum is a fitting tribute to its sailors and ships. Lots of material nicely displayed. Even a postcard from someone holidayingin West Hartlepool in the 1930's

Surprisingly nice museum with technical insight into the lore of the shipping industry of 1800's. An authentic "ship" inside you can visit to see what the ship life was like. Authetic pirate flag and memorabilia from times past. Worth a visit. Suitable for kids too.

Good question, You will easily fill one day in the museum, probably two. When the four masted barcue Pommern is reopened (dec 2018), Then You will fill two days for sure.
